Today our community joined us for a special storytelling event with Kinja at Monash Children’s Hospital to support National Reconciliation Week.
Ron Murray and Sarah James are a beautiful duo called Kinja. Ron played the didgeridoo and Sarah played the violin and sang. Their music celebrates the cultural heritage of their ancestors in a blend of Indigenous Australian and Celtic music.
They performed in the Monash Children’s Hospital atrium, then moved through the wards and visited Stepping Stones, Starlight and Oasis.
Throughout the day, Kinja shared stories about their land, animals, and cultures through their music, which echoed throughout the hospital.
Children learnt about Aboriginal history, and Ron explained that their music is a special contribution to reconciliation between Indigenous and non Indigenous people in this country.
